The ruling New Patriotic Party's (NPP) Deputy Communications Director, Richard Asante Yeboah, says former President John Dramani Mahama's administration is no match for President Nana Akufo-Addo’s.
Former President Mahama has been hitting hard on President Akufo-Addo lately.
Mr. Mahama among other things has accused President Akufo-Addo of mismanaging the economy, leading to what he calls unprecedented levels of hardship in the country.
He went ahead to advise the government to admit the difficulties Ghanaians are currently facing and find ways of alleviating those hardships.
Speaking on The Big Issue on Citi TV/Citi FM, Mr. Asante Yeboah said Mr. Mahama is in no position to advise the President on how to run the country as the latter is better off.
“There is no area that former President Mahama can compare his performance to that of President Akufo-Addo's. In terms of providing support to the people, provision of utility, dealing with roads and infrastructure, health, and many more. The kilometers of roads covered by this government are unprecedented. And the facts are there to show.”
“By the end of this administration, we will break records. Mr. Mahama cannot compare his administration to ours. He is in no place to do so.”
Mahama can't lecture me on economic management, he was abysmal and disastrous – Nana Addo
President Akufo-Addo has described John Dramani Mahama's time in office as an unmitigated disaster, adding that his economic track record , from 2013 to 2016 was abysmal.
President Akufo-Addo said this on Friday, 10th September 2021, in response to a question posed by a journalist at Vovradio, in which she referenced a statement made by former President John Mahama accusing the current government of economic mismanagement.
The President stated that “I wonder whether this statement was made tongue in cheek by the former president. When you look at the record that this political leader, who can accuse my government of mismanagement, there are a few facts that when you put on the table to compare his performance and mine, it would tell you whether what I am offering the people is economic mismanagement.”
